I resisted!

March 5th, 2009 at 06:55 am

I resisted the urge to stop to get something to eat this morning..even to go to Ingles to update my breakfast collection. I grabbed the cream cheese from home this morning so there was no need to stop.

However, I realized that I didn't have a lighter this morning. I usually smoke 1 cigarette on the way to work in the morning. I could have used this as an excuse to stop by the gas station and since I don't have any cash, I would have had to come up with $5 worth of purchase(most gas sstations have started that minimum for debit/credit cards). But I didn't do it! So I am at work, with no lighter(healthier anyway!) eating my bagel.

Got some good news on the propane issue...it is only $278. I usually only order the minimum and in december it was $451. When I asked why she said that the minimum amount increases during winter. It was 165 gallons then and only 100 gallons now. That will get us through probably until next winter! Really need to look into buying a tank so we can have whoever is cheapest deliver. but that is really a hassle. They want alot of money to remove the old tank!

MY DH gave me some money toward the propane, but since I was already expecting money from him, I will still have to transfer some out of savings.

Got a hospital bill last night for a surgery I had 2 years ago!!! I knew that they had never billed me and that eventually they would catch it. $950. will have to set it up on monthly payments. So glad I had insurance because w/o insurance, it was over $4000! but since they have a negotiated rate with the insurance company, it is only $950. WOW! Tell me there isn't a huge mark up on medical care!

    I feel your pain. I had an MRI almost 14 months ago and I just got the bill for a little under $800. If I didn't have insurance it would have cost me closer to $3000. Yikes!!!
